Welcome to Prudence Crandall Center

Dedicated to helping individuals achieve lives free of domestic violence by providing care, advocacy, support, and education.

allarewelcome-300x1981 For over 45 years, Prudence Crandall Center has been a leader in our stateโ€™s efforts to reduce the devastating impact of domestic violence in the lives of victims, their children, and our community. Today PCC is one of only a few programs in the country offering the full spectrum of shelter, housing and support services needed to offer practical, long-term solutions to the challenges faced by victims, helping them heal and move forward to safe, self-sufficient lives, free of violence. We also provide professional trainings, prevention programs for youth, and outreach to raise awareness, reach victims in need, and prevent violence in the future. Through all of our programs and services, we touch the lives of 8,000 adults and children each year throughout our region and state.




This holiday season, we hope you will support Prudence Crandall Center to make our 24/7 services possible. Every year 30% of our funding from YOU, our community, to keep our shelter, housing, court advocates, counseling & prevention programs running. Visit to make a gift today! ... See MoreSee Less
